Fun Stats about Game Consoles

Companies love to tout console sales, and the NPD gives us data on a monthly basis.  But a few days ago our friends at the Pew Research Center released some interesting demographics about console owners.

I found the following to be the most interesting:

  • More women own consoles than men — cool!
  • Roughly 40% of Americans own consoles — not bad!
  • Only 35% of high school students own consoles — they should go buy some more.
  • Only 37% of Americans with a completed degree own consoles, making me fear for my gaming time after I graduate.

Check out the information on the right.  Do any of these statistics surprise you?
